You probably won't find Alabama football coach Nick Saban tweeting or posting a photo on Instagram anytime soon. But it's not entirely impossible. 

Saban left the door open ever so slightly Wednesday. But if he were to start tweeting, he would have very specific reasons for it.

"If I thought it would enhance players' chances to improve their brand, by something that I did, I would be all for it," Saban said Wednesday. 

He added that he tries to focus on two things: Developing players and bringing players to the team.

"If any of you out there can convince me that me having a Twitter account is going help us do a better job at either one of those things, then I might consider it," Saban said. "Otherwise, I don't know why I would consider doing it."

If he were to join, Saban doesn't know what it would look like. 

"I've never been big with social media," Saban said. "It takes a lot of time. You've got to respond to a lot of things." 

One thing is certain: If Saban ever decides to venture into the world of social media, he would have no shortage of followers, and fast.
